¡Feliz Año! Rocky Point Weekend Rundown!

Rundown sponsored this week by BooBar on the malecón – Happy New Year!

The final weekend of 2016, and what a year it’s been! Today just so happens to be “Día de los Inocentes”, a type of “April Fools Day” in Mexican tradition. Maybe that’s why the clouds have rolled in, teasing us into cooler temperatures as we roll into 2017.  There’s plenty of shindigs around town for New Year’s Eve, so be sure to check out “Where to NYE”    Grab your 12 lucky grapes for the New Year, and let’s toast to a new beginning! Happy New Year, now let’s run down the weekend!
